This is what I found;

If you take the practical driving test in your own car then make sure that the car is insured for you to use for this purpose, that the car you intend to drive is legally roadworthy and has a current MOT certificate. Your examiner will ask you to sign a declaration stating that your car insurance is in order. The driving test will not go ahead if you are unable/unwilling to do so. Your car must also have-

* A fully functional seat belt fitted to the front passenger seat
* A valid tax disk and L plates displayed at the front/rear of the car
* An interior mirror for the examiner's use.
* The fitted head restraint should not be removed from the front passenger seat
* Specially adapted cars may be exempt from these requirements.
* If you overlook any of these your test will be cancelled you may lose your fee.




Just double check with your insurance company that it will be OK

Good luck with your test :thumbsup:

There wasn't a requirement for an 'examiner's mirror' when my brother took his test (moons ago) and this would seem to be the only 'extra' from a normal learner's car. (I'm sure the examiner had kittens without access to dual-controls!) Personnally ,I wouldn't know the right place to put the mirror so I'd just give it to them to place at that will!

Best of luck!
